Associate Publisher Isobel Akenhead acquired World all language and audio rights. The first novel in the Beth Young series will publish in November 2018, with the following novels in March and July 2019.
Isobel Akenhead said:
I am absolutely thrilled that Graham is joining Bookouture, as we are long-time admirers of his writing. The first novel follows our heroine, DC Beth Young, as she investigates a series of violent killings in Cumbria. It is gripping, powerful, and utterly page-turning – a must-read for all crime fiction fans.
Graham Smith said:
I’m hugely excited to be joining Bookouture with this new series and I’m looking forward to working closely with Isobel Akenhead. Beth Young is a character who intrigues me and with Isobel’s expert guidance I’m sure this intrigue will captivate readers as she faces all manner of problems.
